Teachers College works in partnership with the Columbia University Middle East Research Center and the Queen Rania Teacher Academy to provide professional development to educational leaders and teachers in Jordan. Key programs focus on building school networks and improving Jordanian teachers' skills in math, science, English, reading and writing.

The initiative involves TC faculty members from several departments, including TESOL, Curriculum and Teaching and Math, Science and Technology. Dr. Thomas Corcoran leads TC's participation as Co-Director for the Consortium for Policy Education and Research (CPRE), a federally-funded center for research on public school policy founded by TC President Susan Fuhrman.
